2000 Dodge Durango Won't Start

Help Please,
I have a Durango i just bought a few months ago and had run fine until i parked it last friday. Went to start it the next day and it would turn over but as soon as it starts, it dies. I pushed the gas all the way to the floor and it started but wanted to die. Got it to warm up and let off the gas pedal and it idles at 600 but wants to drop downn to about 400rpms. Any ideas what could be the problem?

    Yesterday my 2000 Durango started just fine. This morning it would not fire upon cranking. It cranks just fine, has spark from the ignition and the fuel pump is running. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You might want to Check electronic sensors, like would you start with the idle control sensors.Also Try tot urn the ignition key to the point just before the engine starts to turn over And leave the key in the that position. If the fuel pump is located inside the gas tank,remove the gas cap & listen for a "whirring" sound. This sound means your electronic pumping is working.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

that vehicle has a desperate relay for the hazards which is why they work, you have a defective signal flasher sometimes called a signal relay, follow the noise to locate exactly where the part is, usually under driver side of dash, it is a very cheap part and easy to install.

Could be a bad catalytic converter. Have the exhaust back pressure checked. Check the fuel pressure & if possible,drive with the gauge on & see what happens when it dies. If the pressure is good,then it's not fuel. Write back if you have more issues.

I had similar problem with Durango and replaced the "brain" with a refurbished PCM -- google for reburbished PCMs and call the Florida Company and ask they guys there what they think. My fix was < $300.00 by replacing the brain.
